creations ol' violence and revolution,
based upon thc dental of underlying
principles of our oriifiuul government.
They arc the products of ruthless mili
tary rule, of fraud and force combined.
The intelligence and wealth and moral
worth ot all th cae communities are ut
terly proscribed, and ignorance and pro?
fligacy exalted to high places of power.
The machinery of our own constitution
of government, designed only for opera
tion through the exercise of tho will of
a Irec people, has been distorted and
perverted to purposes of tyranny and
usurpation. Hence tho failure of all
these schemes of reconstruction ; hence
they will always fail, for you cannot en
graft the principles of despotic power
on the tree of liberty. You may mu?
tilate that treo and insert your unnatu?
ral scions, but they will nevct grow.
You muy continue by force to pursue
your method, and tho tree may wither I
and may die under your manipulations,
but you can never change its st;jck,
or make it bear for any timo the
false fruit that you have sought to en?
graft on it.
?Would to God the people of this
broad laud could fully realise how fatal
to the cause of civil liberty, how hostile
to tho very genius of our institutions is
the doctrine of ooercive powers, upon
which now alone the radical party
in Congress proposo to govern this coun?
try.
"When will tho leaders of that party
recognize the truth that the true strength
of our Government rests not in thc |
number of bayonets it can command to
overawe and subdue looal discontents,!
not in penal statutes and test oaths and
disfranchisements of the ablest and most ?
intelligent citizen?, but in love and re?
spect which exists in the hearts of our
people toward it and their rulers ? That
its 'cheap defence' will be the ramparts
which patriotic sentiments shall con?
struct to guard it, and that thc 'consent
of the governed' is the only just and
firm foundation upon which we oan build
our hopes lor the perpetuation of the

TKI: SALE OF CA ni. i 'sn IFS--wurr-1
TVJIOltE U1SGHACED.
An unexpected sensation was sprung]
upon thc House this afternoon when the
Miliury Committee reported progress |
in tho ea ct sales' investigation, charg?
ing Mr. Whittemor?, of South Carolina, |
with corruptly disposing of his cadet
ships for the Naval Academy and West
Point, and accompanying a copy uf the
testimony wi. h a resolution of expulsion
ol the guilty member.
The reading of the testimony was I
listened to with marked attention from
mc m he rs us well as an overcrowded
gallery, and Whittemor? was himself
apparently the least excited person of
them all. Ile stood thu universal gaze
with generally unmoveable features, but
to a close observer it might have been
noticed that frequently his eyes snapped
and his facial manifestations showed
that he occasionally felt the deep hu?
miliation of his .situation.
The evidence was deemed conclusive,
especially as Mr. Whittemor? did not
attempt to deny the direct testimony ol
Mr. Brooks that he had paid thc South
Carolina member $1,500 for his cadet?
ship. Hud final action been taken
this afternoon Mr. Whittemor? would|
have been expelled by an almost unani
mous rote, but thc deluy until next
Wednesday may bring tj his rescue
possibly thirty or forty votes, some of
them from those who fear that they
themselves may yet come in for censure,
and others from a spirit of forgiveness
that begins already to develop.- }\uah.

REVELS.
Thc black Seoutor, Bevels, still oe
copies a senatorial sofa, and whether he
will ever stretch his ebon legs beneath
a mahogany desk, and snap his dusky
fingers at the saucy pages; has become
a question of morals. Sumner may con?
gratulate Mrs. Revels in tho gallery, and
Downing give dinners in honor of the
new legislative color ; but all thnt will
not suffice the stern moralists of thc
Senate. They have suddenly discover?
ed that the purity of their dignified body

ol one whose past record, after indus?
trious research, gives up some naughty
stories of indiscretions, youthful and
otherwise, and the groat social and po
lineal ice breaker of his race is counted
out until this delioato matter is settled.
Wo have not been used to consider
irreproachable virtuo as ono of the nec?
essary qualifications of a sonator. The
freshness of scandal has hardly yet worn
off those stories of divorce obtained, of
clerkships granted and of boarding house
exposures, in which certain senators figure
as the moving cause. If?decd, what with
the known general stato of society in
Washington, and the particular instan
oes now and then mentioned, ono can
scarcely belicvo the virtuo of senators

"Macaulay," the New York corres?
pondent of the Rochester Democrat,
makes very serious charges against some
of the Now York merchants. "Macau?
lay" for thirty years and more was
engaged In the merchant's business in
thut city :
THIEVING AMONG MERCHANTS.
The business meu of Now York are
very dishonest. This I know from closo
experience. They have certain "tricks
of trade," as they are called, which arc
tiothiug less than absolute stealing.
Hexes of Castile soup and similar goods
are sold to eoutitry customers, who little
think tuat they pay for box. and all at
full price. Tho cheating on taro is
outrageous. Tea in chests is estimated
at twenty pounds tare, which is always
allowed by tho importer, but a cotiutry
dealer seldom gets more than eighteen
pounds. On half chests twelve pounds
is allowed, while at the Kamo lime thc
dealer marks the chests up a pound or
two. This m ar Ling up of weight entres
ponds to tho marking down of tares.
Casks of sugar, which few country mer
ohatKs can weigh, arc often marked up
twenty pouuds, and sometimes fifi y
pounds. They toll a good story of old
H-H-, a well known grocer ou
the north side, who was notorious for
his boldness in this line. Thc old mau
became at one time somewhat pious, and
when in such a frame was asked by u
clerk who had sold a cask of sugar il' lie
"should go it twenty pounds." "No,
Johnny," was thc reply, "don't go over
ten, for I'm under concern of miud.'*
Molasses, spirits, turpentine, and other
liquids are gauged up. which is very
(>nR?ly done. Au original gauge-mark
ol'say 31 gallons, can be easily altered
into 34, by using a gauger's "scube" in
a neat manlier. If that is not enough,
a turn nf thc scuhe CHU change tho 31
into 30 As a general rule, with many
dealers, from ouc to throe gallons are
made in each cask. Provision dealers
steal in a diflercnt manner. Hurrels ol
mackerel are opened in the bottom head,
and from twenty tit thirty pounds are
removed, and the space Glied up with
salt. When the retailer opens the bar?
rel he always takes tho top head, and
and here all looks right, but when he
gei.s to the bottom he finds a half bushel
more of salt than he expected. Pork
and beef are also thus stolen, and hence
our Government supplies are often
I short, and men suffer severely iu couse
q u cn ce.
I have referred to but a few of thc
I different branches of robbery perpetrated
among what arc culled honorable men,
for a complete statement would fill a
volume. Ono further instance may bc
cited, and.this is thc fraud in essential
oils. It is next lo impossible for any
country druggist to buy a pure article
of oil lemon, oil bcrgainot, oil Organum,
or any similar oils. Thc reason nf this
is that spirits of turpentine mixes so
naturally with these articles that detec?
tion is almost impossible. In these oils
our wholesale druggists make enormous
profit. Carrying out this ?dca, a bold
druggist contrived not only to cheat
country customer.;, bulaloo to fleece tho
trade at largo. To do this he employed
a mcchinist to imitate thc metallic seals
which tho manufacturers put upon the
cans These cans ho would unsolder,
and thon steal about? one-tenth of thc
oil, and fill it up with spirits of turpen?
tine, and then apply tho counterfeit
seal. These cans wuld then go into
tho hands of a drug broker, and would
be sold to tho trude ah pure from the
distiller's hands. This operator I know j
well. He is nothing but a thief, aud
yet in society ho is a "gentleman." Ho
has a fino house aud lives in style, hut
retribution may yet reach him, and
though slow it will bo sure.

CH CT BC II BTKtCTBTTB.
As all persons uro not as perfect in
church etiquette as they might be, the
following suggestions may cot be out ot
ph oe; :
Attending divine worship is not like
attending a public show, though io
this fast ugo there are some whose con*
duct makes tho difference appear but
sionll
First, theo, there is no etiquette for
any place, like thc etiquette of common
sense ; it avails when the rules of the
Chesterfields und the Hichtnans often
make .ODO ridiculous. In eutering
church with a lady, precedo her wheo
asoending und descending stairs, as also
in seeking a seut. Io the latter case,
it is especially polite-you act -is a sort
of shield to her modesty, and then you
save her the confusion of selecting a
pew.
It is proper ii you are a believer, to
kneel or stand ht prayur, according
to the custom ot' the church. To
disregard these is vulgar-at least,
it shuws too much tulse pride, or too little
reverence for the requirements of Chris
tiunity.
Excessive whispering during service
is decidedly vulgar. It is sometimes
necessary to address an undertone re?
mark to your compauion or companions,
but seldom.
Listen to the service-especially the
sermon. In this ugo of church opera,
culled music, you cannot help hearing
that, part ol' thu ceremony. t It would
wake up a Van Winkle. Hut thc sermon
you must not sleep over or disregard.
It is wrong. Appear to hear if you do
j not. A good way is when the minister
is dull, and you can't listen-which hap
pens often enough to make a rule-to
study phietiology-examining tho hump.4
of heads before you. Au hour may be
passed thus politely und pleasant
If you chow tobacco, do not usc it in
church. It is annoying to those
around you, and then the sexton gives
you jesse.
Never leave church during service
uni. ss it is absolotely necessary-as in
sickness, a house a fire or a professional
call.
lt is vulgar to como lute. Sometimes
it is unavoidable-a person wishes to
display a new dress, watch chain or
perhaps a beau. It. will occur soiuothncs
that n poor goose wants to be driven
from bia scat-then it is propel enough
also. These causes, and lite lik?>, excuse
late coming and the congregation
endure them. Auy other delay is unen?
durable.
Dress as plainly ns possible. We don't
mean thut a Indy should appear in her
morning wrapper nor u gentleman in
his shirt sleeves. A nice medium is
the thing in all mitten-ladies should
nut bo taken for milliter's show cases nor
gentlemen for bo jeweled ana neck tied
monkey. A plcbiau goos to church to
show fine clothes ; an aristocrat to show
respect to God
In entering and in leaving the house
don't walk too slow like the shoddies,
nor ton fast like the bash fuis, In thc
on? case, people ridicule you for af
footution ; in the otltor^ ibero is dan
uer of knocking down the pews or
running over somebody. Ilnsteu "slow
ly"
When you look around too mitch in
church, people think you wu ni to show
your profile, or tliar you want to attruct
ai i em ion to your style, or thut you want,
to murry, or thut like poor wheat, thcro
is not weight enough about your head to
keep it still.
Don't look too pious in church either
-it is ns suspicious us too much levity.
Religious worship is nuit her u joke nor
un emetic. If you feel extraordinarily
devotional begin to think about put
tint; .something iu the treusury,
and it will shorten your lace quickly,
innd spread over it the pleasant look of
?duty.
coin l'ltoin isiivG OLD DEBTS.
Wc think it due to a great many
creditors in this und other parts of thc
State, (says tho ..Greenville (8 C.)
Enterprise,) thut their liberal ami
generous course in compromising old
debts, should bc commended ns it de?
serves. We have heard recently of many
instances of liberal settlements between
parties, and wo believe that thc dispo?
sition to make them hus decidedly in?
creased of late. Parties bave all become
innre und more impressed with thc rca?
sonabloncssjof compromise, andu liberal
soiling-public opinion of ibo people
generally, and the advice ol' the lawyers
nil favor them nt ibis limo. Wo have
s"cn that in Anderson the juries brought
in verdicts sealing old (loots and were
sustained by the approval of tho people
and (he Har. This feeling as to such
debts will still extend in every county
' according to thc ciicutnstanccs."
I III. ?TIIND IS TUB MAN.
Tho mind is the mau. Thc body is
simply the instrument through which
the mind manifests itself while on earth.
Thc mind is manifested through forty
or morn organs. Each is primary and
ii '.d?pendent in its I unction, doing its
own work nnd not doing the work of any
other. Euohofthoso powers is mani?
fested by or through a particular organ
or portion of the brain. Tho power of
each organ, all other things hoing equal,
is in exact proportion to the size nnd
quality of that portion of tho brain
through which it is manifested. Tho
nicntiil powers nie possessed originally
in different degrees by different indivi?
duals, und uluo by tho same individual.
One possesses ten talents, another five,
another ono. Eaoh mental power grows
stronger and becomes moro skilful by
?proper exctciso Our accountability is
'just in proportion as wo muke a good
or a bad use of these talents. Eaoh
mental power wns erctUcd for tho por
Eos? of doing grtod, nod was intended to
e properly used.

How sensitivo tho heart becomes

day by day, and year by year, grow the
I darlings whom God hath giveo ua, aftd
blessed us ia the giving 1 At night,
when the day's turmoil is over, and the
evening of healthful recreation is past
when the weary head seelee its pillow,
and the troubled mind lays aside its
pressure of worldly oare-theo the
heart goes out to hs treasures, and the
involuntary prayer ascends for blessings
upon tho loved ones, and God give them
comfort and joy ; make their hearts to
sing; scatter the clouds whieh cucom
Kass them, and show them the olear,
right SUD of His meroy, which never
ceases to shine. How gladly, if we could,
would we place our arm beneath them
and bear them above the sorrows of lifo.
We would oot only share their grief,
but, if God would permit, we would bear
it in their stead, that their hearts might
over bo light, aud their faoes shine for?
ever iu sweet content. But every heart
must know its own?grief, and the best
we may do is to lighten the weight by
such sympathy aud aid as lie within our
power; and this is'much. A pressure
of tho hnud, a word of cheer, a look, a
toue-any expression which comesftotn
a true and loyal heart will bear the
heavenly blessing, and prove God's
messenger for good. God bless our loved
ones ! May their Beeret sorrows be open
to His merciful eye ; may the sad fore?
bodings which como of physical ills bo
turned to hopefulness through returning
health. If life'? responsibilities press
with cruel weight upon the already
overburdened heart, may strength be
given equal to the task, and may a way
bc opened leading out of the depths ol
darkness into the broad sunlight of Hit
love.
' If, in its weariness and distraction,
the loved heart grows rebellious, and
seeks to thwart the plans of Omniscience
may wisdom be given to soe that ever
I sorrow has its uses, and that a childlike
dependence upou the goodness of Goc
is not merely a duty but an act of faith
whieh brings Us rcwurd of peace and joy
God bless our loved ones,and those they
love! If the cares which lie heavies

And who among us all have not loree
